SHANAN CLASSICAL TUTORIALS are tutorial courses for 9th – 12th grade students. (Some classes are open to 8th graders: Algebra I, Logic 1, Physical science, as well as the Study Skills Workshop in August). These classes are open to home schooled students who have been home schooled full-time at least one year.

THE PURPOSE of Shanan Classical is to offer pre-college tutorial courses which will enhance the homeschooled student’s experience. We provide a rigorous line-up of courses which are the basics for high school graduation as well as a thorough preparation for higher education. Whether college or career bound, all students need a good education from a Biblical world view.

The courses and tutors do not replace the parent as the primary teacher. Each student is expected to complete the homework outside of class time and be prepared to participate in class. Parents are expected to follow up to make sure the student is accomplishing the required homework.

Shanan is not a good fit for families who simply want to turn over responsibility of overseeing their student’s progress to someone else, nor for families that simply want to check the courses off their list. We take education seriously (but can still have fun learning) and hope to find like-minded families to join us!

We require students to work hard and be monitored closely by their parents.

Tutorial are held Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:00 am to 4:45 pm.

Registration Cost (per student) PER SEMESTER (Students must register for each semester): $45 for 1 class; $55 for 2 classes; $65 for 3 or more classes ($100 cap per family).

Course Costs:  Varies by class, payable first day of classes or a payment plan is available for families with a total of at least 3 classes. See Course Details for Individual Course Costs.
